Firstly I have to start with a huge congratulations to Spencer Rivkin from Team Associated on a very level headed drive for a 16 year old to take his first World Championship crown.
How on to the Australian contingent. The PDF file below from Neobuggy lists the final standings for all drivers from 2WD with the 4wd competition starting today.

So a huge well done to all, and good luck in 4wd!
Thankyou Redrc.net, you have delivered details of the new durango buggy that I have been waiting to see, a hybrid of parts from the DEX210V2 and DEX410V4 to make what is so far being called the DEX210F. I begin saving for one of these as of now! (unless Team Durango wants to give me one to test 😉 )
To quote the details;
US driver Travis Amezcua is running the new DEX210F from Durango, another car that combines the rear end of a 4wd and the front end of a 2wd buggy to create a astro/carpet specific chassis. Using the parts from both the companies buggy platforms it is a new chassis that brings them together and we are told that the complete kit will be released by the end of the year. Having never raced on Astro prior to this race, Travis has had to seek the help of the British Durango team for set-up and adjustment help as he originally battled with push, but is no struggling with off power oversteer.
Neobuggy has come through again with pics of a new 2wd car from Team Durango. I like it more than the HB car so far, looks to be half of the 410, half of the 210. That said we have not seen under the hood of the new TLR or Associated cars, but somebody sign me up for one of these when i can get my hands on one!
Courtesy of Neobuggy’s facebook page, this is the first good look we have seen under the hood of the new car that Ty Tessmann is running for HPI/HB at the worlds. We have seen teasers before ,but not this much detail under the lid.
Ok, I know most everybody is watching the AFL Grand Final, but I am looking at RC news, more interesting in my mind, but I know most disagree.
Anyway, to the news and proline have bred their Evo Short Course Truck body with their Flo-Tek bodies to get their new Flo-Tek Fusion body. Looks good, and the Flo-Tek bodies really do help stop short course trucks parachuting on jumps, so it is nice to have another SCT body option!
